the Lion Protector of Toys: step 1

The Lion Protector from the Island of Misfit Toys: Progress report 1. This is a piece that I am doing as a (late) Birthday present for my Dear Sister. I could not make it out for her surprise birthday party this weekend and I feel just awful about that. But with her being the keeper of the children, the believer in story, I am doing this piece for her. It is on 18 X 24" masonite that is coated with a white smooth clay so that I can draw ink on it or scratch the black off delicately to reviel the white again. My hopes are to have it done by the End of January. Hopes. I love you Barb, I hope your party was as fun and full of love and friends as I see it in my head.

Engineering Grad

Having grown up in a town that survives on the American Automotive Industry, the state of things right now is unsettling to say the least. I feel like we are all playing checkers on a board balanced on a hat pin... any move is unbalanced right now, but the clock is ticking.
